CPU-World is reporting that some of Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs will be dropping in price in the coming months. A chart taken from the article shows that they're dropping just barely in price, but it's a drop nonetheless. I'm curious how much this will spur more sales, as the drop is so minimal. Would you be more likely to buy now that they're cheaper?
